Summers still here?

Last night the wife and I headed to Moneterey for a belated Anniversary celebration. We ate dinner on Cannery Row and afterward wandered along the pier. It was 75 degrees at 8 at night, very unusual for Monterey let alone this time of year. I of course had to bring the camera along and take this snap of a sailboat enjoying the still water at sunset. The white sail of the boat crossed between buildings where the sun was still coming through so I snapped this while the sail was lit by the setting sun and all the rest of the area was going dark. Sometimes your in the right place at the right time for sure.

Its the middle of the semester and that means Midterms are looming this week and next. We are working on Glass in the studio lighting class. A thin sheet of acetate is hung over 2 sawhorses with a glass base to set the subject on then lit from behind and underneath. I liked this shot of two shotglasses stacked one inside another. The light from underneath does some pretty neat reflections when there is more than one piece of glass in the scene. I would not use this one for my critique but I figured I would share it with you all.

Thanks for reading!
